    Stony Creek Beer 3 Year Anniversary Party!

    Stony Creek Beer 3 Year Anniversary Party!

    Stony Creek Brewery is turning 3! 

    Join us Saturday, March 3rd for the Stony Creek 3 Year Anniversary Party featuring Stony Joe’s Diner! 

    • Imperial Stony Joe: Barrel Aged Coffee Bean! 
    • (3) different Cask Conditioned Variants of Stony Joe! 
    • Live music by Kyle Tacy
    • Brunch served inside by Donovan’s Reef! 
    • Stony Joe Cupcakes by NORA Cupcakes
    • Additional seating inside our brewery! 

    Imperial Stony Joe: Barrel Aged Bean:

    We swear it's a stout….an Imperial Golden Stout!
    Imperial Stony Joe may look like a bright golden ale but it'll bend your mind with the flavor and aroma of an Imperial Coffee Milk Stout. We used Costa Rican Natural Process Coffee beans aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels that had previously held red wine to impart complex and rich chocolatey notes tinged with the spicy essence of rye whiskey and a hint of fruit. This unique coffee is combined with Cocoa nibs to create the rich mocha character you're used to from a traditional stout malt bill. It's a bit of alchemy with all that lush, smooth mocha sweetness hiding just behind the pale golden color.
    8.5% ABV

    Cask conditioned Stony Joe's:
    • 1: Stony Joe Golden Mocha Stout w/ cinnamon buns
    • 2: Stony Joe Golden Mocha Stout w/ maple bourbon soaked birch
    • 3: Imperial Stony Joe w/ s'mores! 😊

    Kyle Tacy Acoustic:

    Kyle Tacy is a solo singing cover guitarist, singer-songwriter, and music producer. Kyle is best known for singing your favorite 90's, classic rock, oldies, and modern pop tunes!! It’s always a party when Kyle provides the tunes! 

    https://www.facebook.com/TACYmusic/

    Donovans Reef: 

    Donovan’s Reef has been operating out of the Branford Lockworks building for over twenty five years. Since then, owner Steve Sinapis has been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food.

    https://www.donovans-reef.com/

    **Brunch will be served per plate at a fixed price per person** 

    NORA Cupcakes:
    ...like most good stories, “it all started in a bar”... Spending so much of our previous careers either working (or playing) in bars and restaurants, it only seemed natural to open a bakery with inspiration coming from that life... AKA "Cake Life". We have taken our love of all foods, all beverages, small business, and supporting our farmers, brewers, artisans, and other local fellow entrepreneurs into a sweet business of creating cupcakes and other treats that showcase just that.

    https://noracupcake.com/

    Tickets are not required for this event! All featured items will be offered al la carte! Beer, brunch, cupcakes and more!
